Engagement is one of the most important and challenging issues facing our clients, and one of the most talked about concepts in the industry today. Everyone wants to better understand how effectively messages are received and how program environment impacts the process. This project will provide new insights into the critical links between the programs and commercials.
Nielsen is keeping pace with the evolving ways that people watch television, thereby ensuring that our ratings continue to be accurate and reliable. The introduction of audience estimates for DVR is a major milestone in ratings history and will provide the most detailed information ever on how and when people watch television.
Including college viewing in the national ratings will give our clients a more complete picture of television viewing, particularly among young adults. Nielsen is continuously striving to improve the accuracy and completeness of its measurements. Expanding the National sample to include out-of-home college students is one of many initiatives we are pursuing.
